May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Valentine Treat Bags using the Cricut

I made these sweet little treat bags for the kids and will be placing a piece of candy in them each day until Valentine's Day. They are made with the Cricut with the Tags Bags Boxes and More cartridge and the letters for their names are made with the Cuttin Up cartridge. The bags were cut using the Fit to Page on 12 x 12 paper and the letters were cut at 3/4".
Enjoy and Happy Feb. 1st!
